A zombie looking for love is a recipe for silly fun. Goofy illustrations and funny situations make this a new favorite.

A classic Halloween tale of a witch with a pumpkin too big to take inside the house for pie by herself. She’s joined by a few other creepy creatures. A cute story and fun bright pictures.
